staplermofo: I know. I'm just bitter that none of the times I've called a paper during an emotional breakdown and told incredible, not credible stories to them they never made print. Well, at least not my side. Their side only made it to a police report and restraining order. Bastards and their connections.

log_jammin: why fact check when "American hero denied healthcare!" makes for a much better story.

I know.  I'm just bitter that none of the times I've called a paper during an emotional breakdown and told incredible, not credible stories to them they never made print.  Well, at least not my side.  Their side only made it to a police report and restraining order.  Bastards and their connections.

Tat'dGreaser: Silverstaff: He seems to want either a plain ordinary office job, or some kind of consultant job. . .but one he can get just off of being a SEAL and not the fame of having been a part of Operation Neptune Spear, much less being the triggerman.

Then why doesn't he go to college like the rest of us did? I'm sorry but being the lucky guy who was the first one in the room that Bin Laden was hiding in does not mean he gets free sh*t just handed to him. How many SEALs have come and gone and not had these problems that he has?

He should have Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits.  That's a full ride 4 year scholarship to any public university in the country, plus BAH (at E-5 rate).

No reason he can't go to school, and even get housing paid for in the process.

The whole thing honestly sounds like he hit epic burnout, just wanted to stop trying or giving a damn, and would like to just retire, but he was a few years too early to do that on the Navy dime.

Did his ego prevent him from asking for a new assignment, like something outside the Special Warfare community?  Couldn't he have become an instructor if he wanted to stay in the SEAL world, but not be an operator any more?

He could have changed ratings and become a cook, a lowly, lowly cook.

LowbrowDeluxe: dittybopper: Ebbelwoi: Memo to Leon Panetta:  Don't ever call a US soldier a "kid".  You farking idiot.

Especially one with 16 years of service.  That makes him, at a minimum, around 34 years old.

Or we could read the article and realize the press secretary was referring to a different soldier.  That doesn't invalidate Ebbelwoi's point, but it does make your followup seem rather...stupid.

Farkers be gettin' truculent.

Funny story:  I spent a few years seeing a therapist and psychiatrist.  Same goal: don't hear voices from people you can't see or touch, keep a job.  Little later, lost my insurance, drop the psychiatrist, drop the drugs.  Little later, now I can see the guys if I stay up a few days.  Therapist says this is bad, changes goals, quit job, go in-patient, stop hearing and seeing some people.  And I'm the one I shouldn't trust!?  What do these people learn in grad school?

Who would have thought that the guy who specifically remembers, "These biatches is gettin' truculent" might have been making stuff up?
